HYMNS 
COMPILED BY
REV. M. EELLS,
Missionary of the American Missiofiary Association.
SECOND EDITION.
Revised and Enlarged.
PORTLAND, OREGON:
DAVID STEEL, SUCCESSOR TO HIMES THE PRINTER,
169-171 Second Street,
1889.
m Entered according to act of Congress in the year 1878, also
18S9, by
GEO. H. HIMES,

Washington, D. C.
/S2, 2-6$
'M NOTE.
These hymns have grown out of Christian
work among the Indians. They repeat often,
because they are intended chiefly for Indians
who cannot read, and hence must memorize
them; but as soon as they learn to read, they
sing in English. It will be noticed that often
two syllables must be sung to one note, as in
the first word in No. 9, nika is sung to the
first note of" Hnppy Lind," and in No. 2, in
the first line, skookum is sung to one note.
The chief peculiarity which I have noticed
in making hymns in this language is, that a
large proportion of the words are often two
syllables, and a large majority of these have
the accent on the second syllable, which renders it almost impossible to compose any
hymns in long, common or short metres. In
the second edition a hymn has been added
in each of the Skokomish, Nisqually and
Clallam languages, and also a medley in the
four languages. M. E.
